The overwhelming majority of our clients’ claims are successfully resolved without the need to resort to litigation. When litigation becomes necessary our firm excels and has a proven track record. In just the past few years:

Our firm tried a bad faith and unfair insurance practice case against a major insurer who wrongfully underpaid our client’s claim. This case was tried by a jury in Stamford, Connecticut before the Honorable Charles Lee. After testimony by our bad faith expert, the case settled under a confidentiality agreement with very favorable results for our clients.

After two years of litigation, Attorneys Jon Biller and Michael LeMoult tried the case of Housatonic Wire Co. v. Grozik, in which they represented a Plaintiff property owner who had his most valuable possession, his business and factory, destroyed in an inferno accidentally set by workers. After trial, the Court rejected the insurance company’s claim that the property was of no value and entered judgment for our client in the amount of $936,273. With offer of compromise, interest added the defendants were facing a judgment plus interest of $1,088,730. The defendants took an appeal but then agreed to pay $962,000. This case was singled out by the Connecticut Law Tribune in its August 13, 2013 edition for the important precedent it set regarding the valuation of building damages and the liability of tortfeasors for environmental conditions caused by their negligence.
